The international blend of African, South & Central American music and American Jazz provided additional international flavor to SAM's current exhibition Peacock in the Desert: The Royal Arts of Jodhpur, India

The quartet Passage consists of Thione Diop, originally from Senegal on percussion and vocals, Ari Joshua, born in South Africa on guitar and effects, Alex Dugdale, born in Colombia on reeds, piano and tap, and D'Vonne Lewis, born in Seattle of a esteemed musical family.
